“I have 3 dogs and about a month ago I adopted a kitten of 2 months called Chloe, Nicky poodle until they are adapting well to the cat, but the problem is the dachshund (XuXa) and Lady (SRD), because I think they hate cats. XuXa is very anxious, sniffing a lot, maybe not bite the Kitty but the sudden moves toward it leaves us on alert and scared that you might hurt the baby. Everyone here at home are in love with Kitty, we can stay with her. Kisses, I’m your fan! “–Silvana Bake Ramos, owner of XuXa, of eleven years.
“Recently I adopted a beautiful turn cans that brought a lot of happiness home. I bought your book “Smart Training” and he helped me a lot! However, Thor has a behavioral problem that I don’t know how to solve. Beyond that, I have three Kittens: 2 females and 1 male. With females, the Thor does not have as many problems as they lay bound. With the male, he plays but in a way quite “thick”. Would be normal if they were games with another dog, but with a cat. The worst is that the cat does not react, don’t try to get out, or stop, and I’m very concerned about end up hurting. Please, what can I do? I’ve tried with the splash of water, scolding, leave without attention but none of it worked! “-Marina Bianchi, owner of Thor, of three months.
Hello Alexander, good afternoon. Well, I have 2 adult dogs (10 years and 7 years) and 2 adult cats (9 and 10 years old) and now adopted more a female, Humi, now with 7 months. It turns out that she doesn’t give peace to the cats, jump over, take tiny nibbles and sometimes even progresses. My cats don’t want to go to the yard for this. With the other dogs living is quiet, even if they like. I realized that the Humi is very territorial (everything is) and also jealous (moves if the others come near me). I know that this is normal because she’s still a baby, but would like to fix in time, so that the chicks have peace and conviviality goes smoothly. Look at the damn photo there. Thank you and a hug! “– Renata Afonso, owner of Humi, of seven months.

That’s cool!! How many pets at home!! Well, we know that the socialization of dogs and cats must be made with great care, because cats have sudden and rapid movements, and this enables the hunting instinct of dogs, causing them to run behind the cats.
So they can meet safely, I would indicate the use of a shipping box, so that your cats can feel safe and their dogs can sniff them without risk, making positive approach training. So, when the dogs move forward or make any sudden movements, you can impose limits more easily (repeat practice several times).
In relation to the heat, you might not have achieved positive results because it was applying them with the intensity and/or wrong time. It is important to know that we must always respect the sensitivity of each animal.
Another cool thing would be to adapt the House to the kittens, because they like to stay in higher places. Such sites also serve as a refuge if there is some disagreement with the dogs. Thus, shelves with tunnels, scratching and specific toys for cats are always welcome. In addition, environmental enrichment, commands and can also make the dogs more calm and quiet.
If you are experiencing difficulties to maintain coexistence between the dog and the cat, don’t hesitate to seek help from a professional team of Citizen Dog. Good practice and, if you need, always count with us.
